It's hard out there for a gay-basher, as WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah has discovered.
In his Oct. 2 column, Farah is shocked -- shocked! -- to discover that hurling anti-gay slurs in public is no longer a great American tradition (even as he hurls a few more anti-gay slurs along the way):
Are Mom and apple pie next?
Those may be the next targets of the homosexual fascists – who are like the anti-American poofy sect of the Taliban.
It’s not enough to institute speech codes in colleges and universities. It’s not enough to chill free speech in the media. It’s not enough to shamelessly parade their sexuality in front of America’s children on the streets, in schools and on television.
Now the crude, vulgar, name-calling, arrogant pink-shirt gestapo is going after baseball and other American sports.
What? Farah's mom spewed anti-gay slurs too?
What set Farah off this time was that baseball player Yunel Escobar was busted for writing the Spanish phrase "tu ere maricon" -- which roughly translates to "you are a faggot" -- on his eye black. Farah was upset that Escobar had to pay a fine and undergo "sensitivity counseling." He continues his rant about the "gay gestapo":
Major League Baseball is falling right in line with this kind of “political correctness.” The National Football League and college football are going even further – banning all eye-black messages. Why? Well, it started when Tim Tebow used Bible verse messages on his eye black.
Blue Jays pitcher Varlos Villanueva learned an interesting lesson from Escobar’s experience, too: “He has to step up, especially how things are nowadays. You just have to watch what you say, or what you express out there.”
And that’s supposed to be a good thing in American society?
Should non-homosexual Americans be fined, suspended and humiliated for a remark that wouldn’t draw a second glance in most homosexual bathhouses?
WND has a long history of pushing an anti-gay agenda, and it employs the rabidly anti-gay Molotov Mitchell, who has endorsed the "kill the gays" law in Uganda and laughably pretends to be the "best friend" of gays.
